Guava Gelato is a tremendously rare Gelato phenotype grown by Sherbinski. Staying true to its Gelato and Girl Scout Cookies heritage with its unique sweet, creamy and tropical aroma and flavours, Guava Gelato is known for its almost unreal terpene profile. Sherbinski has developed a cult-like following and commercial success for his Gelato phenotypes, receiving praise from A-list celebrities such as Young Dolph and Hoodrich Pablo Juan who rapped “The money go where I go, smokin’ on Gelato.” on his popular song “We Don’t Luv ‘Em”.
This hybrid is an evenly balanced 50/50 strain with a legendary lineage and family tree. Sharing much of the same genetics as the Cookies family of strains, Guava Gelato is a unique cross of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC, resulting in a sweet, dessert-like flavour and aroma which is common among this family of phenotypes. Although Guava Gelato is a 50/50 hybrid strain, the effects are more focused on the body, and indica-leaning. Users will find that the effects initially begin as a burst of energy, happiness and creativity that slowly transitions into a melting, full-bodied and relaxing high, making it great for dealing with stress, minor aches and pains, and depression.
The buds of Guava Gelato are very pronounced, large and dense, traits that are inherited from its Cookies family of genetics. The most unique and identifying feature of Guava Gelato is its immensely profound and exotic aroma and flavour that is characterized by a wave of tropical pungency that awakens the senses. The aroma emitted by these beautiful buds contain tropical and guava-like notes, with undertones of a creamy, vanilla-like sweetness.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

In such a growing and experimental industry, science has made it possible for the creation of new strains to meet the unique demand of consumers. Hybrid strains are created when geneticists or growers cross-breed pure indica strains, sativa strains or other hybrid strains together to create a new plant, and they can lean towards either being indica dominant, sativa dominant or an equal 50/50 balance of its parentage. What is different about hybrid plants compared to indicas or sativas is that the range of effects are endless. Hybrid strains are very complex and can be bred to contain both sativa and indica characteristics, making them great for those looking for the best of both worlds, in a sense.
